Here is a clip of the building of my 2ft x 4ft single lane track designed for racing slot Monster Trucks. The obstacles are interchangable and the track is fitted with a switch to reverse the direction that the track is driven in. So even with its small size there is a vast number of veriations to the track. To see the Monster Trucks performing on this track.
Hi guys, I've been absent for about 6 months but have finally managed to source the funding and kinda the time (if I find gaps between our retail shop shop, the kids, design business, jewellery business and organising a festival... =/ I think I need a bit of escapism at the moment!!) to get my act together on my track design. I did have a thread going in Home Tracks but when I was first setting it up neglected to select VIC, so I'm starting up a fresh one here considering it's all going to be new from here on in. A bit of background here http://www.auslot.com/forums/index.php?/topic/15950-brand-new-racer-brand-new-build/ if you want to see the origins of the track design and my progress so far, I'll throw a few in this post here to give a bit of a history too Pretty excited, the track is with the routers at the moment, braid is ordered, finished building the table structure in the garage last night. Aiming to have all this done by January for my son's 4th birthday. Will post regularly over the next few weeks with new pics and so on quite excited to get into the modelling part again, I love constructing but I do love getting lost in flock and paint etc... Initial concept sketch: First track layout and elevations: Beginning the mountain range: Refining: Table design: 80m salvaged pine and two mid expression children Finished the table last night So that's where we are up to so far, next update will probably be when the routing arrives and I get stuck into that! On that note, I'm struggling to find a wiring guide for a track with 3 lanes? Most seem to cover two, would I need to be getting two power supplies? one for 2 lanes and the other for one? Cheers
Red Racer is back with some club racing to suit all forms of Slot car fans. Watch this and simular space's for current and upcoming race event's. Friday Night Racing Sideways Dallara and Riley Championship The first installment of Double R Club Racing will commence Friday the 10th of August. Sideways are produced by Racer in conjunction with Slot.It drivetrains. The combination results in highly detailed replica's with performance to match their looks. They have 12 different liveries and have small design changes which made the car's appear the same but perform differently. We have closed the gap on performance by using Slot.it race magnets throughout the 12 cars which has given them the same amount of magnet down force. The cars will be raced in stock form other than the magnet exception for some close racing. Tyres as alway's will be a must to get adiquiet grip and ride height.
